  1. Maybe KSFO is the problem, not discounting fatigue. CPDLC could also help as its another backup, like 121.5, in the event atc can't get a hold of you. But, the yanks don't use it. Maybe when ADS-B becomes mandatory in 2020, the US will utilize this technology. Cheers.
  2. Funk

    Every six months in the sim. lol
  3. For those who flew the DC8 - TCA, 1964

    Thanks for sharing. Nice
  4. If you are not happy where you are, then move on if it's in your best interest. If movement puts a strain to one's previous organisation, then it can improve conditions for those that remain. Good luck on your decision and wish you well. Cheers
  5. Nicely done. He covered all the points.
  6. One reason for keeping "guard" up on #2 radio. Had that experience once and ATC got hold of us on guard. Stuff can happen. Interesting that this occurred at SFO again. Ouch.
  7. When I see 666 on the EGT gauge, I too tap the thrust lever to change it. It's quite funny to observe my winger's expression. Lol. Cheers.
  8. Friday the 13 is ok. 666 is the number given to devil. NOPE. Cheers.
  9. Didn't AA lost a 767 after takeoff, ex JFK behind a 747 wake, due to the over controlling of the rudder, which caused the tail empennage to snap off? I'd say that this bird would need to pull data on the g forces and possible an inspection of the tail. Ouch
  10. Monarch (UK) grounded

    Are those parked birds a result of the recent hurricanes? Hmmmm
  11. Right On Matthew. Nicely done. Cheers
  12. Thanks for the link. I've been on AA with their zone boarding, based on your ticket price, where the less you pay the higher the zone number. They are very good at denying boarding to those that try to jump the line. The ones with the lower zone numbers board first and get at the overhead bins for their bags. At wja, we tried that and went back to plus and emergency rows first, then free for all. Those that board last will have trouble finding overhead bins free. It appears to work well and boarding is done within the allotted time but do have to deal with bags that can't fit. There is always the announcement that guests can check their bags free of charge on full flights. Personally, I hate this as it encourages many to not check their bags, paying the fee, arriving at the gate to check it in gratis. They should charge at the gate to avoid this, but it's above my pay grade. Cheers.
  13. Issue the ATIS at the same time every hour, similar to the US, UK, etc., at 56 to the hour. It's quite annoying that the ATIS can be issued at whatever time they get around to it. For me, at all close parallel runways, I brief that we hold short of the other runway. Eg. landing on 24L in CYYZ, hold short of 24R and stay on tower frequency. Cheers.
  14. Maybe they were overweight for landing in CYHZ, thus returning to CYYZ to burn off fuel to get under their max landing weight. Plus, as was indicated in a previous post, crew available in CYYZ vs CYHZ. Cheers.
  15. Fifi and Doc

    Nice. Thanks for posting. Cheers
